What type of credit cards does the car hire company accept?

All local car hire companies request that you pay a deposit. To this end you need a credit card that must have been issued in the name of the main driver.
No EC cards/debit cards (including most prepaid credit cards, e.g. Visa Electron) are accepted by the local car hire companies because they cannot be used to block amounts. If you are uncertain if your credit card is accepted locally, contact your bank.
If you want to know which credit cards are accepted by the car hire company, click "Local Hire Conditions" during the booking process. In the pop-up window that then opens you will find the item "Credit Cards Accepted" under "F. Additional Information".
